Learn About "Forgotten Uptown" Tomorrow At The Bezazian Library

This Saturday, at the Bezazian Library (1226 W Ainslie) from 2pm to 4pm, there will be a presentation on "Forgotten Uptown" by the folks at Forgotten Chicago.
"In true Forgotten Chicago form, we’ll show present-day photos of the remnants that remain, demonstrating that relics of history are often hidden in plain sight. The presentation will be fully illustrated with historic and present-day photos and maps, such as the former 1928 parking garage at 5050 North Broadway shown above left that was converted to an office for Combined Insurance Company of America (later Aon) in the early 1960s. Mostly empty since 2008, there are currently plans for this unique former parking garage / office building to be converted to apartments."
You can read more about it at the Forgotten Chicago site and at the Bezazian Library site.  If you're interested in what was here before most of us were, this is a don't miss.  (And of course it's free.)
